This spa contribution is part of the national sponsorship, created by Marquis to benefit Make-A-Wish chapters across the country. As the preferred provider for Make-A-Wish hot tub wishes, Marquis has helped grant more than 500 life-changing wishes since 2000.
“Marquis, CPS Pools and Spas and so many other local partners are making a difference in Mackenzie’s life by helping to grant her hot tub wish,” said Brent Wilson, President and CEO of Make-A-Wish Mississippi. “This will help Mackenzie and her family enjoy hours and hours of quality time together at home and give Mackenzie moments to be a carefree kid, without the worries of her illness.”
The sponsorship was inspired by 17-year-old Andrea’s wish in 2000 to have a hot tub in her backyard. The hot tub eased the physical distress from her chemotherapy and radiation treatments. Now, 13 years later and cancer-free, Andrea continues to enjoy her Marquis hot tub. Her wish inspired Marquis to help with similar wishes; so far the sponsorship has generated more than $3 million in spa donations and discounts for Make-A-Wish. Marquis dealers nationwide are involved in granting wishes.
